I Made Goals


Sure did.  I usually try not to make goals because I feel like a weenie when I don’t meet them.  And if I do make goals, I rarely share them with others because then they ask me questions and I have to admit I failed.  But I made a goal.  Nay, I made more than one goal – I made goals.  And I will be victorious.  Yes… yes I will.

My goals this weekend are to:

  1. Turn on my sewing machine.
  2. Thread a bobbin.
  3. Drive some fabric down the line to practice.
  4. High-five myself for making some progress in the land of sewing.
  5. And, if I feel so inclined, attempt to craft something.

I’ve had my cute little sewing machine since October and I’ve done nil with it.  Even as I set it up at home, the hubs eversolovingly reminded me that I don’t know how to sew.  [As I’m quite good at it,] I ignored his spewing facts and told myself I could do this.  I could.  And I will.  Then I might have not touched my cute little sewing machine since I first set it up.  But by golly, I am bound and determined to use some damn needles and thread.

I have a binder full of tutorials, some projects are more for inspiration rather than coming to life, but my mind has been focused.  I’ve found several “easy” projects but I know they won’t be “easy” until I can weasel my way around my machine.  This weekend, I conquer my cute sewing machine.  Wish me luck.

rachel - Good luck!! One thing you can do that is super easy if you have come fabric is make a pocket. You just fold the fabric in half and sew on 3 out of 4 sides. It would give you a feeling of accomplishment and help you practice sewing in a straight line!
